Grow the Gratitude Tag, Day 4

Rachel over at Rachel and fierce started up a Grow the Gratitude tag. Thank you Rachel for including me in such a great idea. We do need some positive out there in the world right now. Check out Rachel’s site and her post on her family. You have a beautiful family and I love how close you all are. Your kids will have many things to be grateful for when they are adults

Okay, this is how it works. Every day for seven days, you post one thing you are grateful for or how gratitude was shown on your day.

To grow the gratitude, each day tag a couple people to help it grow. We spend a lot of time always hearing the negativity on the news, social media, or whatever, so lets make it a little bit more thankful.


Have fun

show gratitude

Be sincere

Post everyday for seven days something that you were thankful for that day. It doesn’t have to be elaborate. It can be simple, or it could be how you showed gratitude to someone or vice versa.

Tag s few fellow bloggers to grow gratitude

Give a shout out to Rachel and fierce, who created the tag and the person who tagged you to join.

Day 4

I am grateful for the prayers that were answered in my life.


Sometimes there are times prayers are not answered, but there are lessons in those moments so I am thankful for gaining knowledge that way. I believe God gives us what he knows we are strong enough to handle, to keep us strong so we can help others as well.

The prayer I have been working on the hardest lately is  about the hate out in the world. It has made it’s way into my family I fear with the political unrest.

I have never witnessed anything like this before. Family from England and Italy are not getting back with us American family members like they used to. Something is happening to make everyone believe lies and doubt one another.

You can feel it when you walk into rooms or out on the streets…it is there. I could do a whole post on this. But this is about the prayers that were answered and how thankful I am for that. I will continue to pray for friends and family and that includes blogging community too. The world needs more love and kindness put out there and it is up to us to do that.

I tag a couple followers who also pray for many others out there in the world…thank you for that and God bless every person who reads this.

    It is very sad. It has happened to my son and me. Family love should transcend all of that.

  4. Answered prayers are certainly things to be grateful for. I have been praying the same for our world, that we start acting like the loving Brothers and Sisters that the LORD says we are. God’s Word says if we will turn to Him, and call on His name He will heal our land.

    If My people, which are called by My name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. — 2 Chronicles 7:14
